“We are delivering the ultimate doubleheader”
November 14, 2018, St. Louis Region – Gateway Motorsports Park will host the ARCA Menards Series (https://www.arcaracing.com/) on Saturday, June 22. The 150-mile race will be held in conjunction with the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series 200. The event will be unique in that Gateway Motorsports Park will be the promoter of the NASCAR race and Track Enterprises will be the promoter of the ARCA event.
“We wanted to give the fans two great races on the same day and I think we have done that with the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series,” said Track Enterprises’ Bob Sargent. “It will make for a great Saturday evening of racing in the St. Louis area.”
“Our 2019 promotional campaign promises that ‘Action is the Attraction,’ said GMP Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair. “In keeping with the spirit of that theme, we are delivering the ultimate doubleheader. Fans will have the opportunity to enjoy watching practice, qualifying and two incredible shows with just one ticket. Our track has delivered some memorable racing in the past and this very special night should be one that everyone will be talking about for years to come.”
There have been seven previous ARCA Racing Series events at GMP, dating back to Mark Gibson’s win in the inaugural race in 1997. Ten-time series champion Frank Kimmel won the 2001 race and the late Bryan Clauson won in 2007. After an eleven-year hiatus, the series returned in 2018 and Sheldon Creed scored the victory en route to the series championship.
Ticket renewals for current GMP NASCAR ticket customers will began on Monday, November 12, and general on-sale ticket purchases will start on Friday, November 23, at www.Metrotix.com.
Adult tickets begin at only $40 and GMP will offer special packages for early ticket buyers. In keeping with GMP’s family-friendly pricing policy, all general admission tickets for kids ages 15 and under are free.
